10th September, 2019

By PAUL MU

KOTA KINABALU: Financial sponsorships continue to trickle in to support the staging of the 1st Courage Martial Arts (CMA) Taekwondo Cup 2019.

The latest to come forward were Kinabalu Achievers Sdn Bhd, Pick & Pay and Acer Malaysia who responded to the organiser’s plight for financial support to hold the coming statewide event on Sept 13-15 at 1Borneo hypermall here.

Kinabalu Achievers owner Dato’ Stanley Tee who is also the chairman of the Kota Kinabalu Hardware, Machinery and Building Materials Traders Association, Sabah felt delighted to be among the contributors for the event.

He sees the event as an important platform to cultivate the future generation to engage in healthy sports activities. He hopes to see the competition carried out successfully and calls for more corporate organisations to give a helping hand.

Pick & Pay owner John Chong said his company will always support a good cause that benefits the future generation as this is also part of their company’s social responsibility (CSR) to give back to the community.

He was also impressed to know that the competition has received an encouraging response as about 1,000 exponents will see action.

Acer Sabah manager Perry Chong and Acer Malaysia marketing manager Roseanne Ho said they will be sponsoring one laptop CMA Club and lending three units of laptops together with four monitors to be used to calculate the scores.

Acer Malaysia will also be sponsoring some hand gifts for the winners as part of their CSR and hopes other companies will also support the event as it is creating a place for the future generation to gauge their skills.

Organising chairman Chin Tek Ming who went around canvassing for financial aid thanked the contributors for their generosity.

About 1,000 taekwondo exponents representing 30 clubs from across Sabah are expected to compete in five weight divisions for boys and girls. It is open for students aged 6-18 years’ old.

“The exponents will see action in poomsae (form) and kyorugi (free sparring) disciplines,” he said.

The winning club for the kyorugi (free sparring) section will receive RM3,000 cash, whereas the poomsae (form) winners will get RM2,000 cash. The top three individual winners in both disciplines will also receive gold, silver and bronze medals.

The registration fee for kyorugi discipline is RM70, poomsae (RM50), duo (RM100) and group (RM150).
